    A memory of the battle under the Tatras


    The members of KVH Markland Moravia, based in Skalice nad Svitavou (about 30 km from Brno, in the direction of Boskovice), are going to commemorate the first moments of the war on 15 June this year. The Markland complex is directly offered for organizing events with military-historical themes, so it is no wonder that club members have been using it for several years - in summer and winter. Also on Saturday, June 15, 2019, on the occasion of the event called Operation Barbarossa, a number of lovers of military history will gather here, who intend to acquaint visitors with the equipment, armaments and methods of combat during the Second World War throughout the day.

  • Distinctions of the Ottoman army during the Great War

    Shortly after the outbreak of World War I in 1914, the Ottoman Empire sided with Austria-Hungary and Germany, and its army numbered more than one million men after the mobilization. Although Sultan Turkey was then considered a "sick man on the Bosphorus", its armed forces went through several conflicts before the Great War (the Young Turks Revolution of 1908, the war with Italy on Libya in 1911, and the Balkan War in 1912-1913), which were valuable to them. source of knowledge. Although the Ottoman Empire lagged far behind its Western allies and opponents in industry and economics, its troops achieved remarkable success, the most important of which was the heroic and ingenious defense of access to the Sea of Marmara in 1915-1916, known as the Battle of Gallipoli, or the mighty 1916 offensives in Iran and Egypt. However, the protracted war exhausted the Ottoman Empire. By mid-1918, the initiative on all fronts had been taken over by the enemy, so there was no choice but to conclude an armistice on October 30. In Turkey, the sultanate was abolished in 1922, and the following year the country became a republic.

  • The defenders of the great moravian fortresses

    When watching more detailed maps, we can come across the terms "ramparts", "chances", often with the adjective Hussite, Swedish or Turkish, but also "castle" or "castle", or "hradec", "strážnice", "hradiště", "hradisko "," čihadlo", on foreign-language" gard ", related to the term grad and the Russian" gorod ". These are mostly places where tradition resembles some fortification, the fence, which was abandoned, disappeared, but left behind some, albeit the slightest traces, often visible only in the field.

  • Armored cars on guard of freedom

    During the First World War, there was an unprecedented development of various motor vehicles, which, in addition to tanks and aircraft, included armored cars. Although the idea of a passenger car retrofitted with machine gun armament was realized in the first years of the last century, the first mass-produced vehicles, equipped with armor and one or two rotating turrets, saw the light of day on the battlefields of the Great War. The fact is that armored cars were produced by virtually all major states that took part in the conflict. And several such vehicles were also in the arsenal of our foreign troops.

  • Polish army in the Prague offensive

    On July 30, 1941, an agreement was signed between the USSR and the Polish government in exile in London, represented by General Wladyslav Sikorski (1881–1943), Prime Minister and Commander of the Polish Armed Forces. Polish soldiers fought the Nazis even after their bitter defeat at the very beginning of World War II; as early as 1940, they first helped the Norwegians and then took part in the fighting alongside the French army in the number of about 90,000 people. In addition, an illegal but not negligible Land Army ( Armia Krajowa ) operated directly on the territory of occupied Poland. The July Soviet-Polish treaty, concluded under the impression of an attack by Germany and its allies against the USSR, primarily annulled previous Soviet-German pacts on the division of conquered Poland and, in addition, approved the creation of Polish armed forces in the Soviet Union. On August 12, 1941, the Soviet government declared an amnesty for Polish citizens located in the USSR, and two days later an agreement was signed on the conditions for the establishment of a Polish foreign army.

  • The triumphs of the new Russian fleet – the acquisition of the Crimea

    King of Prussia - philosopher Frederick the Great, aka "Old Fric", sometime around the middle of the 18th century, considered Russian troops to be mere hordes of barbarians. It was, however, before his great army experienced the bitterness of defeats inflicted on it by regiments of Russian "barbarians" in the battles of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), and Cossack horses were fed water from the Spree. But how it all happened, we can tell some other time. Our talk today is about how the envoys of the Western powers in Russia deceived their breadwinners and how the Russian fleet became lord of the Black Sea.
